General Area in Englewood>Question Details

Mike Piche, Home Buyer in Englewood, FL

Are there any single family homes in smaller communities in the Sarasota, Englewood,?

Asked by Mike Piche, Englewood, FL Sat Jul 26, 2008

Port Charlotte area (as far east as east as I75) where traffic and noise aren't an issue? Ideally this would be a semi-rural area but with newer homes on larger lots where your neighbours aren't right on top of you. We're planning to purchase a 3 bdr winter home in the next 6 to 8 months and are actively looking for a suitable area before we fly down there in December.

Hi Mike,

Some areas you might want to look into are North Port Estates and Englewood Farm acres. Both of those areas will give you a little more space. I have information and pictures of nearly every community in the area on my website listed below.

Please let me know if I can be of any assistance.

Hi Mike,

You will find out that if you want to avoid traffic and noise and want a newer construction with land, your best best is East of I-75. You can go all the way from Parrish to Charlotte and find some great bargains. If you send me more details about how much you want you pay and what you are looking for in a house, I could send you plenty of listing that match your criteria. No obligations.

Are you Canadian? I had quite a few students over the years whose name was Piche.

Hi Mike,

There are numerous possibilities for you to consider within this location. Without a doubt, some of the best opportunities are located in North Port where you can find a newer construction (2004-new) 3/2/2 pool home priced under $170,000. Many of these homes are located in rural locations and offer the solitude you may be seeking.

There are other great locations as well. We recommend identifying an agent that will work with you prior to your December trip. One that will send you property samples of the various locations so you can begin collecting information and learning about your options before coming here.

As I'm sure you know, the time is right for you to find your home in our beautiful Florida.

Congratulations and good luck,

Susan & Bill Eckler, GRI

Mr Piche and Family,
Congratulations on your decision to join us in our little slice of paradise. There are many areas that fit the description of your future home. I would suggest looking at south and east Sarasota, Osprey, Laurel, Nokomis, east Venice, Englewood and possibly North Port. However, if you enjoy such things as the opera, ballet, theater, performing arts and art galleries my suggest would be to concentrate on communities south and east of the City of Sarasota.

I would be happy to assist in your search, just give me a call at 941-504-3404 or email me at
